New FAQ in description below. Also, Pikachux1000 turned this into a screensaver, you can download it here.
This is what I envisioned when I thought of My Little Pony, Friendship is Magic and Spazzmatica Polka. Basically, it's one and a half minute of showing off the "walk"-cycles I did of the main cast, which in turn was my way of reverse engineering the animation from the show. Not a whole lot else to tell about this, except that you can watch this in glorious 1080p. That's right, you can watch this at a native resolution higher than that of the show's episodes you can see here on YouTube.
Drawings and animations are done by me. Visit my webzone.

And My Little Pony, Friendship is Magic is owned by Hasbro and created by Lauren Faust and a whole bunch of legal jargon that you can easily look up on Wikipedia.
See how I made the Pinkie Pie walk cycle:
Q: What program did you use.
A: After Effects, with the sprites drawn in Photoshop.
Q: Who is the pony at 0:40?
A: That would be myself. I had a sketch laying around so I was like "I'll just ink and color it and put it in the animation for a few frames".
Q: Can I have the SWF?
A: Eh, After Effects? Also, no, you can't have the GIF or MOV or the source files.
Q: What's the song?
A: It's right there on the title card |:\
Q: What's with the blue screen. Do you hate Windows? Are you a Mac fanboy?
A: I am a Windows user, always have been. If anything, I'm not a Mac fanboy. The story is very simple, I just Google searched for a blue screen, found this one, and discovered the pro-Mac message after I actually put it in the animation and decided to leave it in.
